It's been eight long years since Sade's truly great album Soldier of Love, but it won't be long before we get something new.
The British-Nigerian musician will soon release new material for the soundtrack of A Wrinkle in Time.
The film's director Ava Duvernay confirmed the news, writing on Twitter: “I never thought she’d say yes, but asked anyway.
She was kind and giving. A goddess. We began a journey together that I’ll never forget. Proud to announce that Sade has created an original song for WRINKLE IN TIME. It’s entitled ‘Flower of the Universe.’ And it’s a dream come true.”
